Ken Ichinose, Monique Lapins, Gabriela Glapska

Ghost Trio is made up of Gabriela Glapska (piano), Ken Ichinose (cello) and Monique Lapins (violin). The group was founded in mid 2019 as one of Gabriela Glapska’s PhD recital projects. Having quickly realised that they immensely enjoy playing together, they decided to continue working as a trio. All three of them are accomplished soloists and chamber musicians with diverse backgrounds. Despite their recent formation as a trio, they have already gained reputation as one of the most refreshing and enjoyable chamber groups in New Zealand. The trio has focused on exploring a new approach of the greatest music written for piano trio as well as the discovery of less-known contemporary treasures of the piano trio repertoire.
